Marina District will be back on agenda soon

Look for the City of Sandusky's Marina District project to be back in the news again in less than two weeks.

During Monday's City Commission meeting, city manager Matt Kline reported that he is close to putting together a Marina District agreement and plans to present it to the commission when it meets again, on July 14.

"It should be 100 percent ready for commission and public review," Kline said.

That doesn't mean anyone should expect a vote on July 14, explained commissioner Dennis Murray Jr., the president of the commission. The plan is to give everyone time to digest it first, Murray said.

Our newspaper's recent update on the plan is here.

This Marina District is the best kept secret of all. The city has kept everything under wraps until this agreement gets signed. I hope this original document explains more of what will happen, but I doubt it. I think there will still be more unanswered questions. Once that agreement is signed, the developer gets a blank check and it will be too late to be asking questions. After it is signed, all kinds of things will come out that we probably will not be happy with.

Clicking on your links is like trying to get answers from this city commission on the TIF's and the relocation of the Surfs Up property, you get nowhere fast.

I hope everyone takes a good long look at the ugly rendition of the so called improvement to the waterfront. It is butt ugly and out of place for the area. The developer and city commissioners are really messing up the park that has stood for generations. Shame on Murray and Stall for giving away the park and now replacing the waterfront view with an ugly white walled barrier. Go to the developers web page and see for your self. Why not an SR poll on how ugly that building will be based on the drawings released AFTER the election...

Tom, If you are going to be covering the political beat, you need to do better then this; I know you can do the research. Don't just take up space in the chair at the commission meetings. There are some serious questions being asked and no answers forth coming. It is taking on the appearance that something is being covered up. Why bother having the people look over the agreement for 30 days when the commission won't answer your quetions? Work on behalf of your readers.

Now that there is a developement agreement it's time for a BINDING vote. If this is such a good deal, why would the proponents hesitate to give the project some legitimacy?

Do you think perhaps this is really not such a good deal after all. I believe the CRG group was trying to tell the people just this very same thing. You know, we will have increased green space, city hall move at no cost to the tax payer, all lies. We have dropped from 18 acres of green space to 12 acres of green space, and now it looks like it WILL cost the tax payers to move city hall, if it ever really gets moved at all. These commissioners and their backers are trying to pull the wool over our eyes. I think we should have a binding vote also. Common Murray, if you are not afraid that this might not be such a good deal after all, let's have a binding vote by the voters.
